Instruction And Assessment Binder

Online binders have been called a teacher’s best friend. They allow a teacher to compile and organize their materials online and then to access and share those materials via a link. Aside from being a paperless way to store and share materials, online binders can be used for collaboration with colleagues, sharing with students or parents, or as a student assignment. For this assignment, you will be developing an online binder consisting of materials and resources for best practices in teaching and lesson plan development. This is an opportunity to compile and organize the resources that you have already obtained through assignments in this course, plus a couple of new areas that will help in the future when you are planning and developing engaging lessons.

Create an online binder that can be shared with peers, colleagues, and your instructor. You may use any online binder resource approved by your instructor.

Set up your binder as follows:

  • Title your binder with the name of this course: Instruction and Assessment for Diverse Learners
  • Create 5 tabs and name them as follows:
  • Tab 1: Assessment & Rubrics
  • Tab 2: Lesson Planning
  • Tab 3: Instructional Strategies
  • Tab 4: Differentiated Instruction
  • Tab 5: Culturally Responsive Teaching

Follow the instructions below to build content in your binder:

  • Tab 1: Assessment & Rubrics
  • Upload the content from your Wk 2 – Secondary Assessment Guide.

Note: You may also include additional links, documents, or other resources that you think will be of value to you as an educator.
